On Friday Year 6 had a brilliant day working with Singsoc and Sheffield University. They spent the day creating an abridged version of Purcell’s opera ‘Dido and Aeneas’. This not only developed the children’s knowledge of the genre of opera, but also allowed them to learn a classic Greek tale and develop vocal/performance skills. It was a very engaging and motiovating day with one child being overheard saying, ‘This has been the best Friday ever!’
